What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great low cost alternative to overpriced Galaxy I've been using this for 3 months after my S*msung Galaxy died. I'm very happy with this LG model. It has alot of great features for this price. Especially its superior screen capture and voice recorder. There's only a few minor (too me) drawbacks; 1) The power/screenlock button is on the rear of the phone which can be very annoying if you just quickly want to check something while the phone is on its back. 2) The camera takes great pictures if you have good lighting. There are NO MODES or EFFECTS for the shutter like most other smartphones have a portrait mode, scenery, night mode, action mode, etc... Theres also no settings for shutter speed, white balance, or color adjustments. So You'll need an app for any photos unless you take photos with good lighting available. 3) There is no option for wireless charging, such as the Qi standard charger built into most smartphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone, good screen with a sd Just got this phone so far I am impressed and do phone support for a major carrier

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent phone as all LG phones are Love the cameras screen is sharp and sensitive and processor is quick . the only criticism I have (and it is a big one ) is that it doesn't mirror or cast ,so if you want to use Chromecast or other streamers you won't be able to connect, but you can use the hotspot and connect to a tablet or other device then connect. I hope LG and or verizion address this ISSUE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, Light, Fast, and Affordable This phone is an absolute fantastic value-buy. Great reception, fast processor, beautiful android design/layout, lightweight and not too big, replaceable battery, finger-print scanner, scratch resistant screen. It's missing some minimal features such as LED indicators but it's got the core essentials down right. Note that the screen resolution is only 720p, the camera isn't top-tier and the battery could be more efficient but that's a given for a budget phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive 5.3" screen I just bought this phone a week ago, and am still finding new features. Of course, coming from an older LG Flip Phone, there is a lot to learn. The large screen is great, and the camera takes real nice photos.
